Captured troops' families slam blockade removal

Families of kidnapped soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev said on Wednesday that Israel should not lift its sea and air blockade of Lebanon before the kidnappers reveal any signs of life of the captured troops. The statement came moments after the Israeli government announced that it would lift the sea and air blockade on Thursday evening. The families have repeatedly expressed fears that the kidnappers would attempt to smuggle the soldiers out of Lebanon.
